Bastrop County businesses are struggling to find and sustain quality employees.  One ready solution is parents who are not in the workforce. Prioritizing family-friendly practices helps your business attract and keep the talent you need. Additionally, family-friendly practices are your investment in our future workforce.  When parents feel supported, they offer safe, stable, and nurturing environments that build their children’s brains and ensure they are ready for school.  Kindergarten readiness is highly predictive of academic performance in third grade laying the critical foundation for high school graduation, post-secondary education, and future workforce success.
